    Former President Donald Trump on Monday morning posted an angry rant about the FBI searching his Mar-a-Lago resort -- and he accused FBI agents of leaving his bedroom dirty by not taking off their shoes. Writing on his Truth Social platform, the twice-impeached former president accused the FBI of conducting a lawless, unconstitutional search of his home, despite the fact that the FBI was executing a lawful search warrant that was authorized by a judge. "Arrived in Florida last night and had a long and detailed chance to check out the scene of yet another government “crime,” the FBI’s Raid and Break-In of my home, Mar-a-Lago," Trump wrote. "I guess they don’t think there is a Fourth Amendment anymore, and to them, there isn’t." In reality, the Fourth Amendment only protects against unlawful search and seizure, not search and seizure that is conducted after obtaining a lawful warrant. Trump then went on to criticize the FBI for purportedly leaving a mess in the wake of its search. "In any event, after what they have done, the place will never be...
    Heinz will be forced to change its iconic ketchup bottles following the death of the Queen. The manufacturing giant, along with other high-profile brands such as Gordon's Twinings and Bollinger all face having to scrap the late monarch's coveted coat of arms from their packaging. The distinctive image depicts the lion of England, the unicorn of Scotland and a shield divided into four quarters, along with the words 'by appointment to Her Majesty the Queen'. In the case of Heinz ketchup, this was displayed at the top and on the front of its bottles sold in the UK.  Companies are given permission to display the symbol, known as the Royal Warrant, in exchange for providing goods or services to the Royal Household. However, the Royal Warrant Holders Association (RWHA) says the document becomes void after the death of the grantor - in this case, the Queen. Heinz will be forced to change its iconic ketchup bottles following the death of the Queen Gordon's is also among companies which will have to reapply to King Charles III  if they want to...
    House Republicans demanded the Department of Justice now release not just the warrant used to raid Mar-a-Lago but the highly detailed accompanying affidavit.  Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Thursday he would ask a judge to unseal the warrant, barring former President Trump's objection. Trump released a statement Friday calling for the warrant to be released immediately.  But the government has not yet taken steps to release the affidavit used in support of the warrant, which would reveal in further detail the broad investigation into Trump. It would describe the probable cause prosecutors had to believe there was evidence of a crime hiding out in Trump's Florida golf course property.  'It should be released to us,' House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Mike Turner, R-Ohio, said in a news conference Friday of the affidavit.  'We believe that after the [warrant] release today that these questions will still remain unanswered,' he added. He requested that the Democrats who lead the committee support their call for the affidavit and back a subpoena if DOJ fails to provide one.  'We want to know what was...
    Former Justice Department prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who worked on special counsel Robert Mueller's team, explained on MSNBC that if he was advising a client facing what former President Donald Trump is, there would be a strong warning. "If I were Donald Trump's lawyer right now, thank God I'm not, I would be advising my client to be telling [their] family, 'I am looking at jail time, and we should make plans accordingly.'" After House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) threatened Attorney General Merrick Garland, Weissmann said that he should just keep his head down and keep doing his job. "That is such a palpably false statement, the comment from Mr. McCarthy that he has seen enough," said Weissmann. "One of the things that none of us has seen is the warrant, an application to the court. It's very important to remember this was not a break-in, this was not a raid, this was not the attorney general of the United States deciding willy-nilly on his own that he was going to do the search. A court had to...
    (CNN)The parents of Amir Locke, a 22-year-old Black man fatally shot by police in a Minneapolis apartment during a no-knock warrant execution, said Friday that he had obtained a gun legally after a conversation with the family."He made sure that he did his research, everything was going to be legal," his mother Karen Wells told CNN's Don Lemon, adding that he learned how to use it and obtained a permit. "Because they've been watching all their lives about what has been unfolding throughout this nation, on our Black males," she said. The parents said the conversations with Amir and his older brother were often about how to interact with police so he can "live to see another day." Early Wednesday, Locke was killed by Minneapolis police. Read MoreAccording to police body camera video, Locke was sleeping when officers entered the apartment and yelled, "Police! Search warrant!"

    A white man has been charged with assault and his mother has been fired after they called the police on a parking attendant and tried to physically assault him in a filmed altercation that has since gone viral. Edward Brennan, 27, was served with an arrest warrant last week after he swung at Johnny Martinez, who was checking cars for permits at a Nashville residential parking garage on November 27. 'This is a secure building,' said Bitsy Brennan, Edward's mother. 'So how do you think I got in here? Did I follow you in here?' Martinez asks before Edward lunges at him, temporarily knocking his camera down. Bitsy, who was recently listed as a wealth management associate at a UBS division, is 'no longer employed' there, the company said.

    Some cocktails warm the blood. Others stimulate the mind. But some are simply designed to make life more fun or, perhaps in the case of the Royal Family, more bearable. Take the royals’ favourite rocket fuel that is Gordon’s Gin (with an alcohol content of 37.5 per cent), Dubonnet (a wine-based aperitif flavoured with herbs and an alcohol content of 14.8 per cent), ice, a slice and, please, please, no dreary old mixer. The Queen Mother was a huge fan —often confiding she couldn’t possibly navigate her endless engagements ‘without a little something’. Dubonnet was invented to stop French legionnaires catching malaria and pepped up two Queen Elizabeths as their pre-prandial sharpener Or perhaps not so little. Once, when detailing arrangements for a royal picnic, she provided her favourite page, Billy Tallon, with a small, handwritten note. ‘I think,’ it said, ‘that I will take 2 small bottles of Dubonnet and Gin with me this morning, in case it is needed.’ Which, doubtless, it was. The Queen is also a huge enthusiast. Until recently (when she decided to take a temporary...
    A NURSE, who was convicted of killing four patients by pumping air into their bloodstreams while they recovered from surgery, was connected to six more alleged victims while prosecutors made their case for the death penalty. William George Davis, 37, had a distinct and consistent MO during his months-long murder spree in a Texas hospital, according to the arrest warrant obtained by the US Sun, and it was similar to six other patients, Smith County District Attorney Jacob Putnam said in court on Thursday. 2This is the mugshot of William Davis, a disgraced Texas nurse who was convicted of capital murder in the deaths of four patients who died after prosecutors say he injected them with air following heart surgeries.Credit: AP:Associated Press 2Davis is pictured here in a Texas court on Tuesday when he was convicted of capital murder.Credit: Les Hassell/Longview News-Journal via AP Davis was convicted of capital murder on Tuesday for killing four patients between June 2017 and January 2018 while working as a nurse in the Christus Mother Frances hospital in Tyler, Texas.

    Washington (CNN)The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that unless there is an emergency, police must evaluate on a case-by-case basis whether officers need a warrant before pursuing an individual suspected of committing a minor offense into his home.Justice Elena Kagan wrote the opinion. The justices were unanimous in the result but differed on the reasoning."The flight of a suspected misdemeanant does not always justify a warrantless entry into a home. An officer must consider all the circumstances in a pursuit case to determine whether there is a law enforcement emergency," Kagan wrote. "On many occasions, the officer will have good reason to enter -- to prevent imminent harms of violence, destruction of evidence, or escape from the home. But when the officer has time to get a warrant, he must do so -- even though the misdemeanant fled." A lower court decision had held that no warrant was ever required in such a circumstance.She added: "Because the California Court of Appeal applied the categorical rule we reject today, we vacate its judgment and remand the case for further proceedings not...
    The Yale University graduate student whose body was found on a Connecticut street next to his car in February had been shot multiple times and at close range in an attack that investigators say was carried out by a Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher who wanted to date the victim's fiancée. The possible motive behind the February 6 killing of Kevin Jiang was included in a detailed arrest warrant that was unsealed in court on Friday. The 96-page document also stated that Jiang's suspected killer, 30-year-old Qinxuan Pan, has been tied to a string of other recent shootings in New Haven, including one targeting a local school district official, which took place the night before the homicide.  Jiang, 26, had gunshot wounds to his head, chest and extremities when he was found dead next to his fiancée's home in the East Rock section of New Haven, according to the warrant.

    A judge in New Jersey has ruled that a 'friend with benefits' has the same rights inside their partner's home as a boyfriend or girlfriend - to not be searched without a warrant.  Judge Susan D. Wigenton made her ruling on May 13, in the case of a man charged with dealing heroin and weapons charges, who was arrested at the home of his 'friend with benefits' - who he had only slept with once before. Lawyers for Najee Brantley, now 28, had questioned the legality of his July 2018 arrest, when a Gucci fanny pack containing 109 vials of heroin and a semi-automatic handgun were seized. Paterson police had a warrant for Brantley's arrest, but not a warrant to search his home.  Prosecutors had argued that because Brantley was at the home of a 'friend with benefits', Bahjane Reels, he was not entitled to Fourth Amendment protections - which guard against searches of personal goods inside a person's home without a warrant. But Wigenton ruled that Brantley's lawyers did indeed have grounds to challenge the seizure, if the warrant was not...
    By Luc Cohen and Brian Ellsworth Mar 2 (.) – Venezuelan intelligence services monitored six executives of the refiner Citgo Petroleum for a year on US soil to determine their relationship with a business that the government described as fraudulent, which led to their arrest in 2017, according to testimonies. in the court. The executives, known as the “Citgo Six,” were sentenced last November to between 8 and 13 years in prison after a process that the US State Department called a “sham trial.” Five of the detainees are naturalized US citizens.

    American military spies have been buying US citizens’ location data collected by smartphone apps without a warrant, according to a recently unclassified memo. Analysts for the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon-run department that specializes in military intelligence, made the revelation in a memo written to Senator Ron Wyden, the Democrat from Oregon. According to the memo, the DIA has searched commercial databases that contain information about the movements of American citizens as part of five separate investigations spread out over the past two-and-a-half years. The DIA, whose main mission is to detect threats to American soldiers stationed worldwide, appears to be buying location data that specifically pertains to investigations of foreigners abroad. The DIA admitted in the memo, first obtained by The New York Times, that it buys the data from private data brokers and that the data isn’t vetted based on whether the smartphone user lives in the United States or abroad. A military spy agency run by the Pentagon is buying location data mined from American consumers' cell phones and devices without obtaining a warrant, it has...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Two Canadian citizens have been federally charged after they were found to be carrying 67 firearms in their car in Fergus Falls. Dayne Adrian Sitladeen, 29, and Muzamil Aden Addow, 29, have both been charged with one count of being an unlawful alien in possession of firearms. According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 10 around 10:10 p.m., a State Patrol trooper saw a pickup truck going between 95 and 99 mph on I-94 near Fergus Falls. When the trooper approached the truck – a Chevrolet Silverado with a Texas license plate – the driver, later found to be Addow,  handed him a driver’s license from Ontario, Canada with a false name. The passenger handed over a fake Florida ID card, but was eventually identified as Sitladeen. Both the driver and passenger gave inconsistent statements about their trip. The trooper smelled marijuana and asked for Addow’s consent in searching the car. Addow said yes, as long as he did not look in the contents of any of his bags. The trooper then opened one of the bags and...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and Police Chief Medaria Arradondo on Wednesday issued a new policy governing the police department’s use of unannounced entry or no-knock warrants. Under the new policy, Minneapolis police officers will be required to announce their presence and purpose prior to entry. The exception is “exigent circumstances, like a hostage situation”, according to city officials. It’s the first time in the police department’s history that there is an official policy governing the use of no-knock warrants. On an average year, the police department executes 139 such warrants. “This is about proactive policymaking and instilling accountability,” Frey said. “We can’t prevent every tragedy, but we can limit the likelihood of bad outcomes. This new, no-knock warrant policy will set shared expectations for our community and clear and objective standards within the department.” Frey and Arradondo say the policy codifies best practices in the department’s SWAT unit, and adds “transparency and shared expectations” for the community. “Even amid the most difficult circumstances, our men and women of the Minneapolis Police Department continue...

    Unsealed court documents reveal that Google has provided police with information on users simply based on their keyword searches - an action that some say could be a violation of US civil rights.   According to a CNET report, published on Saturday, officers have asked the tech giant to hand over the IP addresses of everyone who had looked up words relevant to their particular investigations.  Ordinarily, police would have to hone in on an individual suspect before giving Google a warrant that orders them to provide that person's search history - but 'keyword warrants' subvert such a practice.   Unsealed court documents reveal that Google has provided police with information on users simply based on their keyword searches - an action that some say could be a violation of US civil rights Earlier this year, police in Florida commenced an investigation after a woman who accused singer R.Kelly of sexual assault had her car set on fire outside of her home.   CNET reports that investigators 'sent a search warrant to Google that requested information on users who had searched the...
    A Black Lives Matter protester was arrested and bundled into a van on a seven-year-old warrant after calling police 'pigs' and saying he wanted to 'take their heads off with a hand saw'.  Jeremy Logan says he was driven away in an unmarked van and kept in custody for more than a day while on his way to a protest in Spokane, Washington.  Logan, the chair of a local Democratic Socialists of America branch, told HuffPost that he was arrested on a 2013 drugs warrant which has only now been fulfilled.  Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich hit back in a lengthy press conference where he insisted that Logan's arrest was 'not a political issue'.  However, the Republican sheriff admitted that officers had been monitoring Logan's online rhetoric in the lead-up to his arrest.  Jeremy Logan (pictured) says he was driven away in an unmarked van and kept in custody for more than a day while on his way to a protest in Spokane, Washington Logan said he was arrested on August 30 after plain-clothes officers grabbed him and told him...

    Mark and Patricia McCloskey went viral in June for pointing guns at anti-racist protesters who marched past their home in St. Louis. Associated Press A lawyer representing Mark and Patricia McCloskey told Forbes that the St. Louis couple has received more than 50 offers to replace a rifle that was taken by local authorities under a search warrant.  The McCloskeys went viral last month after they were caught on video pointing what appeared to be a semiautomatic rifle with an extended magazine at Black Lives Matter protestors who were marching to a demonstration outside the St. Louis mayor's house.

    Two NFL stars accused of robbing four Florida partygoers at gunpoint have found their legal woes mounting, after police produced transcripts of conversations and a video seemingly showing attempts by a friend to pay off the four men who were allegedly robbed. DeAndre Baker, a 22-year-old cornerback for the New York Giants, and Quinton Dunbar, a 27-year-old cornerback for the Seattle Seahawks, are accused of staging the holdup on May 13. The pair, both from Miami, were allegedly at a cookout in Miramar, Broward County, playing cards and video games when a fight broke out.   Baker, according to police, flipped over a card table and then 'whipped out a semi-automatic firearm', and began directing Dunbar and two others to start robbing the guests at the gathering.  Quinton Dunbar, 27, is accused of armed robbery at a Florida party on May 13 DeAndre Baker (right) was at a party with Dunbar in Miramar, Florida, when a fight broke out RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next New York Giants star DeAndre Baker was playing Madden at a......
    The Senate Judiciary Committee has now headed down a partisan rabbit hole. On Thursday, the committee will likely vote to approve issuing 53 subpoenas against various political enemies of President Trump, including top campaign aides of Trump’s 2020 opponent, Joe Biden. Republicans assure us that they are not just running a political errand to dirty up Trump’s Democratic rival and advance Trump’s conspiracy theories.  We’ll see. It is fair to question whether this will be a real investigation, consistent with the Judiciary Committee tradition of bipartisanship and sound oversight, or a partisan, scattershot fusillade to serve the Trump 2020 campaign. Opening indications are not good.   I recently read an article from The New York Post on the June 3 Judiciary Committee hearing that stopped me—a former federal prosecutor—in my tracks. The passage covered Rod Rosenstein’s testimony before us last week on his decision to sign off on FISA warrants. Here’s the part that caught my eye: The key moment came in questioning from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who asked, “If you knew then what you know now, would...
